The pistol is from 1780s, the dress is probably 1850s, so I might re-make the image mmore authentically or just move on and do something else.

I wouldn't be able to tell you the difference between 18th and 19th century clothes so as long as the gun's of the correct era I wouldn't worry about it. Good work:)

I'd go with your idea of a more modern type weapon like an old cap and ball colt or remmington revolver - as the flintlock or single shot feeds that anti's idiocy that the founders only meant muskets and such and wouldn't have supported the rkba for more modern repeating arms - a cap and ball revolver has repeat firepower and is recognizable as the close relative of modern cartridge revolvers. Just not a Walker Colt - I doubt many ladies carried those.

You might also punch it up by doing a split picture - one side with the armed woman of the past as you have now calm and placid and the other showing a terrified female on the street unarmed in fear of attack - it'd be a nice contrast and show the hypocrisy of modern liberal/femminist anti-gun attitudes that results in making women more vunerable.

Looks good to me. I don't think many who look at it will notice about the dress.

Good idea about the revolver -- I have pics of a .36 Remington appropriate to the 1860s.

Maybe a picture of a modern firearm to highlight the difference. Blackpowder pistols may not be affected by the unConstitutional Sullivan Law. Man, am I glad that I left NYS. I can hardly wait for "The War of Northeastern Expulsion." Keep up the good work. Even though I now live in Texas, maybe I will re-join SCOPE.

Isn't the opposite of progress, congress?

dress looks fine for 18th c... chemise covered by a bodice was as far as I know a little daring for the time (think of a modern woman with her slip showing).. but not terribly unheard of I guess. The plaid could as easily be a shawl of some sort. Looks great as is.

... well, except for the missing flint in the pistol. :D

PS -- I like your type treatment on this one -- good one!

Looks good. Is that an English Dragoon or horse pistol? The acorn on the front of the trigger guard suggests English origins.
